The Yacht Week Announce Partnership with SKYY Vodka

May 13, 2013

SKYY VODKA, the premium vodka born in San Francisco, loves the sea and that most fascinating and elegant of sports - sailing. For the second year SKYY VODKA is partner of The Yacht Week, and since last year it can also associate its name with the most prestigious sailing competition in the world, the 34th America’s Cup.

SKYY VODKA was first conceived in 1992 by an inventor looking to create the world’s smoothest vodka. On-board or off the water it is a delicious drink and the superiority is due to the proprietary quadruple-distillation and triple-filtration process that consistently ensures exceptional quality.

Sailing is part of SKYY VODKA’s soul, which is demonstrated by the sponsorship of one of the most prestigious sailing teams in the world, the Emirates Team New Zealand during their competition for the America's Cup. Moreover, SKYY VODKA is sponsor of The Yacht Week in Italy for the exhilarating sailing experience in the Aeolian Islands that will involve 20 boats a week, from July 13th until August 17th.

This year SKYY VODKA will be part of the The Yacht Week fleet with a cobalt blue boat carrying its logo and characteristic colour. SKYY VODKA’s boat will accommodate all SKYY’s guests giving them the chance to enjoy a charming holiday amongst the amazing Aeolian Islands. They will have the chance to participate in the glamorous and trendy SKYY parties that will be organized during the summer, three times a week.

With its iconic cobalt blue bottle SKYY VODKA is the perfect drink after a race or a day out in the sea. Juicy and flavoursome it suits all moments to relax and enjoy the company of your friends.

A special cocktail has been created to celebrate the link with the sailing world and the America’s Cup: SKYYPPER. It is a fresh drink with ingredients that recall New Zealand. Easy to prepare, SKYYPPER is a mixture of Lemon-soda, Blue Curaçao and of course SKYY VODKA.

This summer all participants and guests of The Yacht Week will also have the chance to taste the new SKYYPIROSKA made with the latest SKYY Glacial Mint or with the well known SKYY Peach, SKYY Strawberry and SKYY Passion Fruit.
